Iranian Cartoonist Gets Sentenced To Prison: First For Her Art, Then For Adultery

Atena Farghadani is already serving a ludicrously lengthy sentence for her artwork depicting the Iranian government as animals, and it has now been extended because she shook hands with her male lawyer during a prison visit, which is illegal in Iran. The current crime she's being charged with is “illegitimate sexual relationship short of adultery”. What do you think of this?

Which is more ludicrous? Being arrested for drawing cartoons criticizing the government or for shaking a man's hand?
